a long hiatus. sam stein of "the huffington post" is here, the most vice president heather mcghee and "rolling stone" editor ehrlich bates. >> despite a proverbial flat tire following a rocky week for the governor the romney/ryan campaign launches a bus tour through ohio. last night on cbs romney insisted his campaign will be making no u-turns. >> a lot of republicans would like to know a lot of your donors would like to know, how do you turn this thing around? >> it doesn't need a turn around. we have a campaign which is tied with an incumbent president of the united states. >> romney's bus has another pot hole to navigate around this week. the campaign released his 2011 tax documents on friday afternoon, along with a 20-year summary of his returns since 1990. the 2011 returns show the governor paid 14.1% in taxes, on over $13 million of investment income. president obama's campaign is already bringing romney's taxes back to the forefront releasing this ad in ohio today. >> mitt romney attacked 47% of americans who pay no income tax including veterans, elderly, the disabled. >> m

tonight, keli goff, who is political correspondent for root.com and sam stein, political rorter for "the huffington post." great to have both of you with us. keli, you first. how offensive is this? imeg reasng is it has to respond to? >> well, i'd say on a scale of 1 to 10, we're heading into, like, 20 territory, ed. i think at a certain point this stepcande ese ert any candidate do to not get support? right? like, i think at this point we have to start having a competition just to see where the lineof offensiveness, how far we can push these boundaries. apparently making rape jokes esn'do it, makg mini cments doesn't do it. maybe somebody has to drop the "n" bomb, but with rick per re and the rock thing. >> sam, how does he overcome this? >> i don't think he does. todd akin should have a rule he shouldn't speak about women or women's issues because it causes him more proems than it's worth. obviously missouri is a conservative state, or trending conservative. it's not going to vote for president obama like it did. claire mccaskill has always been in a dog fight with respect to the senat

has yet to do but so far he just looks like he's doubling down on this statement. >> sam stein, this comparing mitt romney's performance to a baseball batting average has got to get this guy williamson fired by midnight tonight, right? >> i think he'll stay on the payroll, unfortunately. it's a bad analogy. mitt romney could have waited 12 hours, woken up and seen the news and said we all mourn the loss of life here but it's time to look at the president's strategy vis-a-vis the arab spring. the problem i think that romney has is that there's about three different factions within the republican party. there are people who are unpoll jetically pro international engagement. there are people who want to do it more subtly, more realistic. and then there are the people who are the ron paul types who want to disengage from the international community. he has to contend with three separate faction within his over party and i think they look at that and for us to go after president obama on character groinds, accuse him of sympathizing with the protesters. and that's where he gets in twubl.

huffington post, sam stein, explaining how the red sox are still going to win the world series. and anchor for bb world news america, catty kay. so great to have everybody with us. willie, i was looking at the clips of mitt romney from his political performance last night. i thought he did pretty well. you have so many people talking about how this race is over, and you hear it wherever you go. we've got a long way to go. and if romney can right his ship, anything possible. that said, a flurry of polls out this morning that are just absolutely devastating for mitt romney. if he's going to turn that corner, it looks like he's going to have to turn it pretty quickly. >> yeah, he did what a lot of people like you called for him to do which is to step into those remarks he said. a lot of conservatives said you said it, it's on tape, now embrace it. there's critical battleground states that don't look so good. joe, you want to take a look at some of these? >> first of all, willie, why don't we look at these fox news poll numbers because they are the battleground state polls. look first o

, 47%, 42%. sam stein covers politics for "the huffington post." what do you make of these numbers we're getting that show definite strength in races we were seeing neck to neck. it looks like democrats are pulling ahead. >> the trend is pretty obvious. you're starting to see a reflex of that in the polls. one thing that's clear after the convention is the country by and large is buying into the fact that the economy wasn't as bad as republicans said it was. obama is doing as good if not better than mitt romney on the she of the economy. i think the country is looking at the democrat party and saying their platform is where we want to move the economy forward. the republicans had two years control of the house. we don't like what they did. maybe we should try something new. >> i wonder whether it was bill clinton's wonderful -- it wasn't just a rousing speech with a lot of applause lines, but it was the educational factor where he talked about what the president was stuck with back in '09. what he's been trying to do, and how it's working, if slowly, how it's working. he was the fi

you're doing. >> joining me is jonathan chait and "the huffington post's" sam stein. what the differences are and the similarities in the tapes. >> what obama was trying to say was that, yes, there's a constituency that's opposed to him and he expressed it in a kind of condescending way that people don't like and understandably don't like, but it was fundamentally an express of social solidarity. he was saying my policies will benefit these people. we can explain it and we need to make the case, and if we make the case, i think we can get some of them to come our way. romney's was essentially saying my policies are not going to benefit those people, so they're never going to vote for us no matter what which is a kind of a disturbing thing to say if you want to be president. >> your thoughts on what's similar and dissimilar? >> one is trying to reap out and one is assuming they won't be for your cause. another famous comment, he started off saying, why are these people voting for you? it's easy to say they don't want to vote for the black man. they won't vote for me because i'm
